Greetings Saxons,

I hope this message finds you and your family enjoying the lazy days of summer. As you are aware, FCPS Superintendent Dr. Brabrand sent  an email to the community last week outlining plans for our return to school in the fall.   Dr. Brabrand’s letter  may be found here,in case you missed it.  The entire presentation to the school board can be found here.   Additional details regarding school reopening may be found on the FCPS website. To access the information, please click here.

Now that a clear direction has been provided, we will begin to productively plan for August!  Earlier today, families received the FCPS 20-21 School Year Calendar Survey. Completion of the survey is crucial for the school so that we may appropriately plan our staffing for both virtual and face-to-face classes.  I kindly ask that you please complete the survey by the July 10 deadline. 

I am sure that many of you may have questions that have yet to be answered.  Please know, I will provide additional details as they become available.

Wishing you continued wellness,

Kimberly Greer

Looking Forward to Sunnier Days 

We're planning to landscape Langley's main courtyard as soon as logistically possible.  Just how gorgeous and green it will be depends upon how many donations are made. To help, donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is “growing” in the Langley Lobby.  Another 40+ leaves and several birds were added to the tree right before the school closed. 

Leaves make wonderful graduation gifts! About 100 of our seniors/soon-to-be grads already have a leaf inscribed in their honor. Leaves are also a great way to pay tribute to teachers, family and friends. Giving levels are copper leaf ($50), silver leaf ($100), gold leaf ($200), and acorn or bird ($500). With a $1,000+ donation, your family's name is included on the Courtyard Benefactor Plaque, which will be installed next to the Tree.

Congratulations to Junior, Lucy Chen on making "Honorable Mention" for her entry "Why we should be kinder to our custodial staff?" in the NPR Student Podcast Challenge. Students on English 11 and AP English Language classes were tasked with creating a research based podcast to submit to the NPR Student Podcast Challenge.  Lucy focused her podcast on Langley pyramid by asking us to think about those people that often go unappreciated – our custodial staff.  Of the 2,000 entries, Lucy’s podcast about the efforts of the custodial staff made the list of Honorable Mention, a Langley first.  If you know Lucy, congratulate her, and more importantly, when you see a Langley custodian OR any custodian, be sure to say THANK YOU!

AP Information

We need to ensure that students are receiving emails/information from the College Board related to AP Exams.  College Board has sent us data that identifies 151 students at Langley that have NOT responded to emails College Board has sent in regards to taking the AP Exam.  Therefore they are asking that ALL AP students review the information below as well as complete the steps in pages 1 and 2 of the attachment.  If you have any questions please let me know.

Thank you!

Jennifer Baldesare JLBaldesare@fcps.edu

This flyer provides step-by-step instructions for students to update their email accounts on file with the College Board. In the next two weeks, we will be sending critical information, including an AP Exam demo and their AP Exam e-tickets, to the email accounts we have on file for students registered to take an AP Exam.  

The AP Exam Demo will be available the week of May 4. Completing this demo is a critical step for students. We recommend students practice submissions through the exam demo, which will give students a click-through of the different ways to submit their responses to this year’s AP Exams. The demo will be generic across subjects, and not a practice exam. A video walk-though of the world language experience will also be available. 

Students will receive their e-ticket by email two days before they test. On exam day, they’ll need this e-ticket to check in to their exam. Students will get a unique ticket for each exam they’re registered for. They can also access their e-ticket on My AP (myap.collegeboard.org). 

Additionally, here are new resources available to help guide your schools and students through the test day experience: 

  •  2020 AP Testing Guide. The guide, designed for educators to walk through with their students, provides information about: 
    • The AP Exam E-Ticket 
    • Five Steps to Take Before Test Day 
    • Understanding the Test Day Experience 
    • Exam Scores, Credit and Placement    
  • 2020 AP Exam Day Checklist. Teachers should have their students to complete this checklist for each exam they take and keep it next to them while testing. 

 

Explainer VideosNew videos are available to give students quick, easily accessible information about their test-day experience, what they need to do to prepare, support from Higher Ed institutions, an exam walkthrough, and more. Explore the playlist

Alert! NEW AP News 

AP News

For students testing with accommodations the latest information is listed below.  This information will be sent to students individually via the College Board.  Also below is an action item regarding student email addresses.  Students need to be using a personal email address to receive their AP Exam(s).  We currently have 8 students who are NOT using the correct email address.  The AP Coordinator, Counselors, and Teachers have reached out to these students, however, this serves as a reminder to follow the steps below as this is a crucial action item.  Finally information about cancelling exams, refund information, and weighting is listed below.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The information below was delivered to educators on Tuesday night with information and links to the accommodations page for the May 2020 AP exams.  I have also linked the page Accommodations for 2020 AP Exams.  Please read through this page carefully as it outlines new information about the May 2020 AP exams and accommodations - including guidelines for supports for temporary medical conditions and waiving accommodations.  Please also share this with your AP coordinators and teachers as you deem appropriate. 

STUDENT EMAIL ADDRESSES

AP Students should (use the this one-pager  for a student walk-through)

  1. Check their email and ensure their correct email address is saved in their College Board account.  The email address needs to be a personal email NOT an fcpsschools.net email
  2. Update their phone number and give us permission to text them in their College Board account.
  3. Mark collegeboard@e.collegeboard.org as part of their approved sender lists.
  4. Students can also indicate the college, university, or scholarship program  to receive their one free AP score send for this year’s administration.

Cancelling and AP Exam Question: How does a student cancel an AP exam if they do not wish to take an online exam? 

Answer:. No staff action is necessary to cancel an AP exam. If a student does not take the exam it is automatically cancelled and the $40 cancellation fee will not be assessed.

Refunds

Question: Will homeschool students, non-enrolled students, and students with AP exam counts over the six be refunded the $94 AP Exam fee if they choose to not take their exam(s) be refunded the AP exam fee?   Answer: Yes. Refunds will be issued starting June 8, 2020 (after the final day of AP testing on June 5). Weighting

Please look for an email on Tuesday with instructions, thank you.

     

    The following are a preview of the questions on the FCPS Senior Survey, so you will have the correct information with you to complete it.

    1. What is your post-graduation plan?
    2. What are your college applications results? A final decision must be selected for every college application, you will be asked to add, update, and verify all college applications.
    3. Did you submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)? This is a federal government form that helps the college determine your financial aid. Your parent(s) and/or guardian(s) may have completed this form for you.
    4. Did you receive any federal government financial aid other than loans? This question refers to need-based aid that does not have to be paid back, such as a Pell Grant.
    5. A scholarship is any money awarded to a student based on merit (e.g., academic, athletic, talent, leadership, community service, etc.) and does not include grants listed on any financial aid award letters. Have you been offered any scholarships? (it may be helpful to gather any scholarship offers or awards prior to completing the senior survey)
    6. List the total amount of scholarship money you have been awarded and are accepting and using. If an award is offered for each year, give the total amount. Example: 1000 per year for 4 years is 4000.
    7. During high school, did you participate in any work-based learning experience? You will be asked to select from a list of activities. If you did not participate in work-based learning experiences, please select “No experience.”

Langley Library has put together a guide for supplemental reading and virtual resources for you to explore while you are at home. You can find the link for the guide here  (https://langleyhs-fcps.libguides.com/c.php?g=1023738) as well as on the Langley website under the Library tab or the Library Blackboard page under Announcements. We are also available to help anyone in the Langley community with reading suggestions. Just email us at klortiz@fcps.edu or paclark@fcps.edu. Just remember to Keep Calm and Read On! 

Social worker and psychologist:   Langley’s social worker Catherine Kennedy and psychologist Anna Davis recently created a Google classroom where Saxons can access stress management resources . They’ve posted activities and several links. Students can assess the classroom from their FCPS Gmail accounts here , and using code buh6s76 . Students also can set up individual appointments with either staff member from their FCPS Gmail using this link . 

Parents can set up phone appointments as well, either for themselves or their student, using this FCPS form . The parent consultations are intended to help parents support their student's emotional well-being, and the student consultations are intended to help students having a hard time with anxiety, mood, behavior, or peer or family interactions. (In an emergency, please call 911 or access mental health support online ).

Parents and students also can email Ms. Davis at adavis3@fcps.edu and Ms. Kennedy at cskennedy@fcps.edu .

Now's the Time to Donate Your Leaf! 

We're still planning to landscape Langley's main courtyard as soon as logistically possible.  Just how gorgeous and green it will be depends upon how many donations are made ASAP. To help, donate a leaf-- or two!-- to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is “growing” in the Langley Lobby.  Another 40+ leaves and several birds were added to the tree right before the school closed. 

Leaves make wonderful graduation gifts! About 100 of our seniors/soon-to-be grads already have a leaf inscribed in their honor. Leaves are also a great way to pay tribute to teachers, family and friends. Giving levels are copper leaf ($50), silver leaf ($100), gold leaf ($200), and acorn or bird ($500). With a $1,000+ donation, your family's name is included on the Courtyard Benefactor Plaque, which will be installed next to the Tree.

Did you know… David Braucher Ph.D with Psychology Today  writes, “Although we may have a fair amount of anxiety concerning the potential health and financial impact of the virus, there is also an insidious loss that we are suffering. This is the loss of self-experience we suffer when we are unable to engage in our daily and weekly routines.” The article covers ways to regain sense of self during these challenging times.
